Got this quote at Marc's and want to expand upon the message.
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway. -Earl Nightingale
Remember when we couldn't wait for our next birthday? Remember when we couldn't wait for Christmas? Halloween? School to be out? School to start? I used to ask my Mom to count up how many more days it was until we got to go back to school. I loved school.
All those things happened. The time passed and boom there it was. The same amount of time would have passed had we been dreading those same events.
Can we wait and are we looking forward with excitement to reaching our goal weights?
Would we have done something to delay our next birthday? To delay Christmas? Halloween? School? Not on your life. We would have hurried those things up if we could have.
Why do we delay reaching our goal weights? For the sake of the example--if your goal is to reach your goal weight by January 1 of 2015 why would you or I do something to make that happen on January 1, 2016? That's a long time to wait for something. What if our goal is to lose 1 lb. per week? Why would we make it take two weeks to do that?
It's time to rumble and do this isn't it?
I am doing pretty well as I hope you are. I could tell my slacks that I wore to Church today felt looser. I have been doing planks. Those are hard for sure.
